BATTLE HYMN OF THE ROGERS 



Tune: "Battle Hymn of the Republic." 

The name of Rogers shineth high upon the scroll of fame; 
"Nos nos-traque Deo" is Rogers motto that we claim; 
And nearly all the Rogers have pursued a lofty aim. 
The clan goes marching on! 

Chorus: Glory to our grand old family, 
Virile, worthy, brave and loyal! 
Glory to the name of Rogers! 
The clan goes marching on! 

Joseph, Richard, John and James were fathers of our clan; 
Posterity of Henry and Hugh Rogers never ran. 
Sir Edward was quite virile, Robert was a sturdy man. 
The clan goes marching on! 

Our sires of Home, in England, raised their standards to the sky. 
John was the martyr who would never yield but chose to die. 
Robert led his Rangers with the Rogers battle cry. 
The clan goes marching on! 

When the good old ship Mayflower sailed across the sea, 
In sixteen-twenty, Joseph came without a family; 
Today his name is honored by a proud posterity. 
The clan goes marching on! 

When the first steamship ventured across the ocean blue 
Moses Rogers was the captain of the ship and crew. 
Edward served the Queen and to Her Majesty was true. 
The clan goes marching on! 

When danger threatened country, or a battle to be won, 
Or righteous causes need defenders, or work to be done, 
Brave Rogers were right there, and never did a Rogers run. 
The clan goes marching on! 

The Rogers Clan is mighty, with three hundred thousand strong 
In seventy-six, a thousand Rogers fought to right a wrong. 
Twenty towns bear Rogers names. Sure, let us sing that song — 
The clan goes marching on! 

The Rogers sons have courage any task or foe to face; 

The Rogers girls are lovely with their beauty, charm and grace; 

The Rogers leaven is a blessing to the human race. 

The clan goes marching on!

(A) INTRODUCTION 



THE Rogers Family is among the forty -nine "best families" selected by 
. the American Historical-Genealogical Society for whom the Society 
£^j has published family histories during the past few years. The Rogers 
family has been prominent in the British Empire and in the United States, 
its members having played important roles in war and in peace. Family 
pride is a commendable trait and should be cultivated. All Rogerses have 
just cause to be proud of their family history and traditions. 

In references No. 7 and No. 14 we find the following regarding the origin 
and meaning of the name Rogers : 

The personal name of Roger was exceedingly common all over the country 
in the 13th century. It vied with Robert, John and William for popularity 
(or several centuries. Early registers teem with the name and many persons 
bearing it are recorded as tenants in Domesday Book. The Christian name 
developed into the surname of Rogers, Rodgers, Rogerson, etc. 

In the reign of Edward II, Roger de Norbury had a grant of the estate 
Df Home. His son took the name of Rogers and his posterity continue to 
reside at Home under that appelation. 

The family of Rogers of Wisdome, Devon, baronets, descend from John 
Rogers, prebendary of St. Paul's, the first victim of the Marian persecution. 

The data in this volume is gathered from reliable sources. We have 
selected what we consider the most important material. Many of the 
laughters, and sons for whom no issue was shown, have been omitted from 
:he pedigrees. A missing symbol indicates that a name has been omitted. 
Those desiring further information are advised to consult the volumes men- 
tioned in the list of References. 

The compiler hopes that, in producing this volume he is bringing to the 
Rogers family information which will be of interest and value to them, and 
:nat he is rendering an important service to the public. He and his associates 
will be glad to give their cooperation to members of the family who are inter- 
ested in having a complete genealogy of the family published. 

Unless otherwise plainly shown, the persons in this volume whose names 
ire accompanied by three figures are children of the immediately preceding 
persons bearing immediately preceding numbers. All persons in each group 
rearing the same letter as a part of their numbers, are directly related. The 
;enerations of the descendants of those bearing numbers of three figures are 
•epresented as follows. However, some of our material is published as copied 
rom various records without rearrangement according to this system.

(B) THE ROGERS COAT OF ARMS 



A"^ COAT of Arms is an emblem or a device which is displayed by titled 
persons, persons of royal blood, and their descendants. Coats of 
SJjjSJJ Arms were originally used for purposes of identification and recogni- 
tion on the field of battle as well as in civil life. 

It is claimed by some writers that Coats of Arms, in a crude form, were 
used by Noah's sons after the flood. There are records of other Coats of 
Arms, in one crude form or another, at different periods of ancient history. 
Heraldry, however, as we know it today, did not become of much importance 
until soon after the invasion of England by William the Conqueror, A. D. 
1066. Heraldry became of general interest at about the time of the Crusades. 

The Rogers Coat of Arms shown in the front of this volume is the Arm s 
of the Rogers, Baronets of Devonshire, of which family was John Rogers, the 
Martyr, progenitor of several families whose pedigrees are contained in this 
book. Coats of Arms very similar to it are used by the Rogers of Wisdome, 
Co. Devon, Bart.; Yarlington; Barons Blackford, and many others. Numer- 
ous other branches of the family have Coats of Arms resembling it. 

This is the most widely used of all Rogers Coats of Arms and has been in 
existence for many centuries. It is described in BURKE'S GENERAL 
ARMORY, BURKE'S LANDED GENTRY, BURKE'S PEERAGE AND 
BARONETAGE, BETHAM'S BARONETAGE and other reliable works on 
heraldry, in some cases accompanied by illustrations. It is the Arms of the 
New England families descended from the Martyr, and has been used for 
generations by their descendants and by many other American branches of 
the Rogers family.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION 



A silver shield bearing a red 
chevron between three run- 
ning bucks, all black. 

On a green mount, between 
two green laurel branches, a 
buck in natural colors. 

We and ours to God. 



Sir Bernard Burke, of Heralds College, London, said "Heraldry is prized 
3V all who can show honorable ancestry or wish to found honorable families/' 

Besides its family significance this Coat of Arms makes an excellent mural 
iecoration and inspires the admiration and comment of all who see it. 




It is quite appropriate that members of the Rogers family who have a 
pride in their ancestry should display the family Coat of Arms, in proper 
colors.

(K) ROGERS TOWNS, ETC. 

There are in the United States towns as follows: 

Rogers: Ark., Ky., La., Minn., Nebr., N. Mex., N. Dak., Ohio, Tex., 
Va.; Rogersburg: Wash.; Rogers City: Mich.; Rogers Gap: Ky.; Roger- 
son: Idaho; Rogers Park: 111.; Rogers Rock: N. Y.; Rogers Springs: 
Tenn.; Rogersville: Ala., Mo., Pa., Tenn. There are also in the United 
States numerous counties, townships, streets, avenues, etc., bearing the name 
"Rogers". This is eloquent testimony to the high esteem in which the name 
is held in this country. 

(L) ROGERS CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES 

The compiler of these records has made up a list from city and telephone 
directories of the United States, and from other sources, as follows. Care 
was taken to eliminate, wherever possible, persons known or believed to be 
colored, or of nationalities other than British and American: 



Alabama 170 

Arizona 43 

Arkansas 72 

California 918 

Colorado 191

Utah 50 

Vermont 50 

Virginia 130 

Washington 280 

West Virginia 112 

Wisconsin 137 

Wyoming 6 

Total 11,413 



To secure an estimate of the "Rogers population" of the United States, 
we figure as follows: 

•(a) 
Multiply 

by 

Only about half the names were taken from each directory 
consulted 2 

Half of the Rogerses reside in the rural districts or in small 
towns having no printed directories which were available to us 2 

There are an average of more than four persons in each American 



65 



family 4 

Since Rogers daughters marry and have as many descendants as 
the Rogers sons, there are as many descendants of "other names" as 
there are bearing the name Rogers (though it is much easier to 
locate the latter) 2 

By multiplying each figure of column (a) into the preceding 
figure, we have a total of 32 

Conservative estimate of the Rogers population of the United 
States, one-half of whom bear the name Rogers and one-half of whom 
bear other names 365,216 

The estimated Rogers population of any of the states may be 
obtained by multiplying the figures shown by 32. The Rogers popu- 
lation of the British Empire is probably equal to that in the United 
States. 

(M) RELIGIONS OF THE ROGERSES 

For several centuries the Rogerses lived in England, Wales and North 
Ireland. Most of the British (with the exception of those living in South 
Ireland), and, likewise, the Rogerses were and are of the Protestant faith. 

There are a few Rogerses of the Catholic faith in the British Isles, but it 
is estimated that their number does not exceed seven per cent of the entire 
Rogers population. 

The Rogerses who came from the British Isles to America continued in 
the faith of their fathers, for the most part, though their descendants in this 
country today will be found in the memberships of practically all the various 
churches. It is estimated that of all the Rogerses in America who are church 
members, at least ninety-five per cent are of the Protestant faith. 

Biographical sketches of sixty-six Rogerses appear in WHO'S WHO IN 
AMERICA. Their religious faiths are shown as follows: CONGREGA- 
TION ALIST, 4; EPISCOPAL, 5; METHODIST, 2; METHODIST 
EPISCOPAL, 1; PRESBYTERIAN, 8; PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL, 3; 
ROMAN CATHOLIC, 1; UNITARIAN, 1; OTHER PROTESTANTS, 3; 
RELIGION NOT STATED, 38.
